Microsoft codename watch: Add 'Vancouver' to city-inspired list

It's (a bit past) time for my latest update to my Microsoft codename tracker. Among the new entries is Microsoft 'Vancouver,' a new SQL Azure-related codename, from what my contacts tell me.

It's (a bit past) time for my latest update to my Microsoft codename tracker. Among the new entries is Microsoft 'Vancouver,' which my contacts tell me is a new SQL Azure-related social-networking-inspired service that's in the midst of development.

If you want to find out more about Vancouver, download the May version of my codename tracker here. This PDF is the same chart I use myself to keep up with the codenames of products and technologies coming from Microsoft. This month's edition includes both new codenames and lots of updates to the growing list I'm tracking.

If you’ve already registered on ZDNet, you can just grab the latest version. If you haven’t, registration info will be requested before you download it. Whether you’re a Microsoft customer, partner, analyst, competitor (or even employee), you might find the Tracker useful.

If there’s a Microsoft codename missing from my chart that you’d like me to check out and ultimately add, please don’t hesitate to contact me via e-mail. Just so you know: All e-mails I receive are treated as confidential — unless you want a mention/credit line, of course.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to get posts from “All About Microsoft” in e-mail form (hourly, daily or weekly), you can subscribe here. And if you are all about Twitter, you can follow me there, as well.
